We sacrifice and work hard but there are no guarantees. Hard work can still result in hard times. Sacrifice can be for naught, but to expect success or reward would be to show misunderstanding of the way. It is enough to do, it is enough to make an effort. Fortunes crumble away, legacies are tarnished, the unforgettable becomes forgettable. All washes up on the beach and then is gone again.
